THE Pet Shop Boys, who celebrated their prestigious ‘Outstanding Contribution To Music’ award at the Brit Awards on Wednesday night with a hit-packed live medley, have now announced two very special live shows.

The duo will play London’s O2 Arena on Friday, June 19, 2009 and Manchester’s Apollo on Thursday, June 18, 2009.

Tickets are on exclusive Live Nation presale now, before going on general sale from 9am on Friday, February 20.

The Pet Shop Boys were joined onstage at The Brits by guests Brandon Flowers, of The Killers, and Lady GaGa. Their new album Yes will be released on March 23, preceded by the single Love Etc on March 16.

The duo’s dynamic live shows have seen them work with artists, designers and directors such as Sam Taylor-Wood, Zaha Hadid, Derek Jarman and latterly opera designer Es Davlin, with whom they collaborated on last night’s Brits performance.
